Don't call it Windoze. if you don't like Microsoft Windows , don't use it. If your company requires you use Microsoft products, then choose to work for companies that don't.

I don't know what's your problem. Why are you mucking with emacs setup? If you want emacs 23, do a fresh install, or compile. If you need your setup to still fuction, your elisp code should be written in a portable way, and you simply just copy them to your new emacs install. Dont think you hot and mix and match components and libs and complain. If you run into some elisp incompatibilties introduced in emacs 23, you need to tell what are the errors, or which function coughed.

amazing, Lin Dozers always tech geek and gets nowhere.

Cheers :)
